Side Chick: Cheesy Asparagus Gratin

My sister and my niece came over for dinner to enjoy some delicious lamb with roasted potatoes and asparagus.  Knowing my 10 year old niece, it’s hard to get some nutritious greenery in her system.  So, I thought I’d add a delightful element to my asparagus.  Cheese!  This recipe is super easy!  She still was a little uneasy about eating the disguised veggie, but everyone else seemed to think it was okay.  In my opinion, I love asparagus in its natural state.  The less the better.  I just thought I’d try this out to see if it could change her opinion on my favorite vegetable ever.

Filet Mignon With Roasted Rainbow Carrots and Red Potatoes

Now that Kevin works a shift where he can actually cook my pregnant and hungry self a yummy dinner, he’s been throwing down in The Moore Kitchen.  Today we ran to H-E-B, our local grocery store and picked up some beautiful prime filets.   He cooked and seasoned them perfectly.  Along with those, we enjoyed some roasted rainbow carrots and yummy red potatoes.  We did almost burn the house down at one point, but I’ll get more into that later.  Here’s how he cooked this perfect dinner.

Honey Soy Garlic Glazed Chicken Thighs

Baked chicken is one of my go-to meals for when I don’t want to do too much for dinner.  I use the same cooking method every time, but sometimes I switch it up with a different glaze or sauce.  Sometimes I just season it and leave it without a sauce, sometimes I do a lemon or herb sauce.  Tonight I decided to top it with a honey soy garlic glaze.  It leaves your taste buds with the perfect amount of savory and sweet and a yummy Asian flair.

Not Your Average Thanksgiving Feast

Since we celebrated Thanksgiving a week early at my sisters house, we decided to have one more small Thanksgiving dinner at my in-laws house.  This wasn’t your traditional Thanksgiving dinner.  This one involved seafood, and when I say seafood I mean LOTS of it.  Kevin’s dad did his thing in the kitchen and he didn’t want any help!  It was wonderful to spend that quality time with family.  The food was so delicious and I ate myself so much of it that I couldn’t even breathe by the end of the night.  Laughs and smiles were shared throughout the evening while we enjoyed some delicious homemade steamed crab pots and loads of other yummy foods.  It was so nice of mom and dad to host.  I love them to death!  Check out some photos of our feast!
